Weekend by the bullets

Friday
- Dinner at Josh and Jami's. I'm always amazed by how much their kids have grown in between our visits. And it was quite adorable to see 3-year-old Hallie help Jami bake halah. Jami is the queen of baking (I'm at "princess" status myself) and I know she's super excited that Hallie is as helpful as she is.

Saturday
- I dragged myself to the gym. I've been slacking lately, but I'm trying to get back into my kick ass routine.
- We ran a few errands then attended the 30th birthday party of my dear friend Atineh.
Atineh & I

- The party was held at a swanky modern club in Downtown LA called the Blue Velvet Room. And Atineh instructed us to be sure to check out the bathroom before we left. What could be the big deal? Well, it's a unisex bathroom. Even with the warning, I was still surprised when I entered the room for myself. The sink area sits in the middle of the room and is HUGE. It features four motion-censored sinks and huge fake blue bonsai trees.

(I didn't take that picture. I already feel self-conscious enough snapping away, and I just couldn't do it in the middle of a bathroom with so many people nearby. Thanks to the magic of the internet, I didn't have to do it myself. Phew.) I'd like to go back and try some of the food. What we saw looked amazing.
- Two former co-workers of mine also attended the party. We were chatting about various foods and one of them asked us if we could eat only two cheeses for the rest of our lives, what would it be? My first immediate answer was burrata. I was stumped for my second answer. Brent noted that he might choose burrata, too, but he might go with feta instead. His other selection might be another cheese like sharp cheddar to balance out the softness of his first choice. He said it was a tough decision, one that he'd be thinking about for a while. And he's right - he was still talking about it today. How about you? What two cheeses would you choose if you could only eat two for the rest of your life?

Sunday
- Brent and I strolled the local farmer's market, where we picked up some amazing produce. The weather was picture perfect and I enjoyed sipping on my tiger spice chai (a spicier, more flavorful chai) while people-watching.
- I spent the early evening at another baby shower for Wan. It was a beautiful event, filled with lots of pink (awesome!), friends and family and of course, love. It also featured yummy treats, a candy buffet, adorable gifts and games (two of which I won, including a group win with my other pals there - woo hoo!) And Wan is as radiant as ever!

  3. It was gorgeous today, wasn't it. It was a great pick-me-up for me.

    Hmmm...I'm kind of picky about cheese, but would probably say cheddar and mozzarella. I only like the fancier stuff in small doses.

    was it weird using the unisex bathroom? what kind of food does the place serve?

  8. thanks for the shout-out. I was actally really disappointed in the challah (it's ridiculous to spend almost 5 hours baking something and have it not come out perfect), but it was delicious having the kiddo help me bake!

    i couldn't possibly pick just two kinds of cheese. if I go with something general like goat, can i have it in multiple forms (standard goat cheese, goat gouda...)?

  10. i'm boring too - mozzarella and cheddar are my favorites.

    haha - i often end up posting pics from the internet on my blog for visual aids too, because i get "the look" from the hub if i bust out the camera for random shots.
